January Favourites | 2016






January has been and gone and you guys know what that means, It means another month has passed us by were I've used many things ranging from beauty, to skincare. I thought I'd share with you all my first favourites of the year! 

So let's get to it....


The First thing that I've been loving and I mentioned it in my December Favourites & that is my Emma Hardie Amazing Face Cleansing Balm, I've done more of an in-depth review here, if you wanted to have a read, this is my third pot now and I absolutely adore it, I'd go as far as to say I actually look forward to my skincare regime since this little fella made an appearance, this has really helped balance my skin out as I have combination skin which is a pain in the backside, this so far *touches wood* is working for my skin, It's balanced it right out and I'm happy, my skin just looks a lot more healthier and more plump, thanks to this beautiful balm, I have actually already repurchased another one of these as I ran out quite recently, I swear I need a never ending one like the size of Marry Poppins hand bag ;). 


Sticking with skincare I've also been loving my Origins Ginzing Energy Boosting Moisturisers, again this is amazing, it smells of oranges which I'm not a massive fan as it does make me slightly not want to breath when applying it, but never the less it's amazing and that's why it's in my favourites post. It's a super light cream, doesn't feel heavy and just make my skin look a lot more awake and fresh first thing in the morning which is what I always need. I love this product so much but I don't think it really needs to be that pricey, coming in at £24rrp it is more of an expensive moisturiser however I do think it's worth every penny.


One thing I've recently seemed to of loved and that's a new nail varnish from Barry M, Barry M are one of my many favourite brands of nail varnish SO much so that i practically own nearly ever shade of blue you could possibly imagine, however this particular one in the shade Forest is one that I've fallen in love with, this is probably one the most quickest drying nail polishes I have ever bought, It's this really pretty greeny coral coloured shade and it's just gorgeous, I love how this shade doesn't chip easily either.


Now I slight weird one but It's a Bobby-pin Pocket, you may be now wondering what in the name is that...well let me tell you it's probably one of the best inventions I've ever come across whilst wandering in boots. It's a little pocket (ideal and perfect for handbag size) case filled with bobby pins (or hair grips). I now haven't lost a single bobby pin (well maybe one or two) since using this, I love it. It's weird but something I constantly reached for in January, I keep this in my handbag at all times, it's really secure and I highly recommend you taking a little trip to boots to purchase this little Bobby-pin Pocket.

Makeup wise, I've been constantly using my YSL lipstick in Beige Charnel as it's the most beautiful nude lipstick I own, and lasts all day and just glides straight on to my lips, doesn't feel heavy or cakey (don't you just hate a cakey lipstick).

One thing that I've been quite surprised about is that I took a little trip to Meadowhall a few weeks back, and headed to Kiko to purchase some of there gorgeous products & one product which I did purchase and have really been loving is their cream foundations, honestly I've never thought I'd like this but I really do, It's super pigmented and gives a nice matte & natural finish when it's applied, It's not heavy at all I picked this up in Warm Rose 50, I've been using this constantly and just love it, I'm going to do a much more in depth review but so far it's one of my new favourite foundations.

Batiste, I've been loving doing messy buns throughout January and more so on third day old hair, what perfect way to have a cute hairstyle then with batiste, they kindly sent me there new Sugar & Fun Sweetie Dry Shampoo, This smells like Raspberries and Vanilla Cupcakes, It gives an instant refresh & yes I do sometimes just spray it because of the gorgeous scent! It came with a little sweetie too which just makes it even better, I love how long this lasts I don't feel like it ever needs to be re-applied throughout the day, It gives a full coverage and basically I'm in love with it! I've used quite a bit of this throughout January so I had to feature it in my favourites.

I've also been really enjoying using my 'One Line A Day A Five Year Memory Book' I bought this way back in December and started using it on New Years eve/Day and haven't stopped I just love that I can next year read what I did last year (if that makes sense) I use this last thing at night and It's something that I treasure quite a lot as it means a lot to me, It's so much fun and something I love.

and that is pretty much everything I loved in January, I hope you like these types of posts. I'd also really like to know what things you loved in January, so let me know in the comments or on social media.

    1. Honestly it's brilliant, and applies SO easily, it gives a really natural make-up look and isn't heavy at all, I'd highly recommend taking a little look at their foundations Megan.
